This Colorado City Was Just Named One Of The Safest In The U.S.
A recent study by the group Niche revealed the 33 safest cities in America, and one Colorado city has most of the rest of the nation beat. Boulder was named the 22nd safest city in the U.S. To determine the rankings, researchers looked at public crime data from the U.S. Census and the FBI. Statistics involving larceny, vehicular theft, and murder rates were all considered. Niche also took into account more than 100 million reviews from real people living in America’s cities. Here’s a closer look at Boulder, the safest town in Colorado.
